Project Description

I want to develop software that can run securely on a PC, for a self-service large-format print setup. Basically the software needs to oversee the job submission/ payment/ printing process. Work schedule is flexible but work must be completed by mid-August.

End user will need to:

Access pdf files on a flash-drive

Open these files and submit them for printing (printing will use large format printer -aka "plotter"- that uses a 36" roll)

Software will then need to:

Measure the length of the print job (possibly adding the lengths of multiple pages within one file)

Calculate cost according to total length

Ask user for and accept payment (Using [credit/ debit] or a web-based credit-tracking system)

After payment is confirmed, software should send the job to the plotter

Additional features:

Program should track total length of jobs sent to plotter, so staff can know when plotter's paper roll is getting low. Staff will then change paper and reset this tracker

Software should not interfere with remote-access capability for remote support

Software should support multiple plotters from one computer terminal, for future business growth
